One of the most important marks of a woman is its genital organs. There are a lot of products on the market for making your face look younger, but there aren’t such products for the vagina.
Karen Boyle, M.D. is a female sexual health expert and she explains: “Gynecologists don’t warn women that these things can happen, and then women are shocked when their vulva and vagina are fully changed within several years.”
Anyway, this is a complex topic and most women are feeling uncomfortable to share their vaginal problems, even with their gynecologist. Read on and learn 7 simple tips to maintain the health and condition of your vagina.
1. Maintain a Good Hygiene
Unpleasant vaginal smell is the most usual problems that women experience. In order to stop this, you should wash your vagina twice a day with a gentle soap and warm water.
Pay attention to the pubic hair that surrounds the vagina, since this part of the skin has many sweat glands that can cause the unpleasant odor. Wash your vagina with chamomile tea and avoid highly alkaline soaps.
2. Have regular haircut or shaving
The regular haircut or shaving will facilitate the maintenance of vaginal hygiene, because the pubic hair retain bacteria and sweat.
3. Let vagina to breathe with the right underwear
Use the right lingerie which will allow air around your vagina because, leaving the area damp leaves you open to a bacterial invasion. Cotton underwear is preferably to nylon and other airless fabric.
4. You need to change your underwear once a day
Never wear underwear for more than one day. Bacteria multiply in a damp ground, while vaginal secretions make it unhealthy. The importance of this is even higher during menstruation.
5. Don’t put perfumes on your vulva
The perfumes can cause pH imbalance, which is leading to infection. So you should keep your vagina clean, that is the best option.
6. Visit your Gynecologist regularly
It is recommended to go to the gynecologist 2 times in a year (every 6 months), especially for women who are under 21 and are sexually active. He will do a PAP test and scan your ovaries and uterus with ultrasound, and will find out if you are having any infections. So, it is very important to visit your gynecologist regularly.
7. Did you know that you can make your vagina taste better?
It is scientifically proved that the taste of your vaginal juices can change its taste by eating the right food. You need to include more fruits to your diet, especially grapes, apples, mangos because they are full of natural sugar. You need to avoid garlic, onions, alcohol, spicy foods, and coffee because they have a negative effect on the vaginal juices.
NOTE: We recommend you to use baby wipes after going to the toilet because they have neutral pH and no perfumes and aren’t harmful to the health of your vagina.
